I just bought an XFX R9 270x and have not been able to get it to work at all. The fans turn on,my computer turns on, but I can not get it to get a signal no matter what.

Here's my specs
970A-G46 Mobo
Rosewell 750w PSU
Sapphire Radeon 7770HD Ghz edition (my old card)
AMD FX-8350 8-core CPU
2 500GB HDD
128GB SSD

Yes it has both 6 pin connectors,
Yes I have unplugged my PSU, plugged it back in and the reset PSU
Yes I have reset my Mobo's BIOS
Yes I have gone to Safe Boot and reset the card

Anyone have any other ideas? I can't be the only one in the world with this problem and this thing is driving me insane (20 different support lines and no progress)

Sounds like a DOA card. Can you test it in another system?

I only have one system but I doubt its DOA since this my 4th card I've gotten replaced. I kept thinking they were DOA so i sent them back.

Have you tried another PSU? Your current unit may have issues and can't properly power the card. Since the 7770 works I doubt its a motherboard problem.
